Smith, A., Stewart D., Peled, M., Poon, C. Saewyc, E. & the McCreary Centre Society (2009). A Picture of Health: Highlights of the 2008 British Columbia Adolescent Health Survey. Vancouver, BC: McCreary Centre Society.

This report provides the results of the fourth Adolescent Health Survey conducted in 1,760 classrooms across 50 of BC’s 59 school districts. The 2008 AHS is the largest survey of its kind in Canada and provides the most comprehensive picture of the physical and emotional health of BC youth, including risk and protective factors. The results are used by government, schools, health professionals and community organizations to assist in the planning and evaluation of services, policies and programs for youth.The 2008 AHS shows us that the majority of BC youth are in good health, feeling connected to their family, school and community; and are engaging in health promoting behaviors. However, the results also show that there are some youth in our province who are more vulnerable than others.
